Fruit of the Vine

Dunstone Winery and Bovlei Valley Retreat, Wellington, Boland, South Africa.

Dunstone Winery was established in 2006 when wine making was brought to the farm by Lee and Abbi and Abbi’s father Robert Frith. The winery is set on the lower slopes of the Bovlei Valley.

The boutique cellar is open throughout the year for wine tasting, which can be enjoyed in the coolness of the cellar overlooking the barrels whilst touring the wine making equipment or on the verandah overlooking magnificent mountain views.

A total of 2.7 Ha was planted to merlot and Shiraz vines in 2003. All aspects of vineyard maintenance and care are done by hand – no machinery goes into the rows of vines. During harvest the grapes are hand-picked in the cool of the morning, chilling overnight in the cellar and then hand-sorted – only the best berries are selected for Dunstone Wines. After fermentation the red wines are aged in selected oak barrels for up to 14 months. Our wine range includes Dunstone Rose, Dunstone Merlot and Dunstone Shiraz.

Relax and unwind in our 4-star guest house and self-catering cottage. Awake to the sounds of the country and enjoy a delicious breakfast with home-made delights. Enjoy the gracious Cape Dutch verandah in summer. In winter be warmed by a roaring log fire. Dinners available on request. Relax by the pool, walk through the vineyards and fruit orchards and indulge in the sweet scent of lavender and roses. Five well-appointed rooms in converted stables and one self-catering cottage. All include air-conditioning, TV and tea tray with private patio and mountain views. Tastings and Cellar tours: Monday-Friday 10h00 -17h00, Saturday from 11h00 to 15h00. Restaurant: Monday through Saturday from 12h00 through 15h00.
